RISK MANAGEMENT AND SAFETY
We make it a priority to understand the needs of patients, families, and staff, and current and future building functions, then we work to balance costs with ongoing operational efficiency. The success of a project depends on how these differing needs are managed, which is why we thoughtfully consider all these factors in our planning.
We do a significant amount of healthcare construction within occupied facilities. Recognizing that patient care is ongoing, our projects involve careful planning and collaboration with design, construction, and healthcare staff. Our process includes assembling a project schedule that considers every detail from construction phasing to infection control risk assessment (ICRA) planning, and even inspection processes.
We have developed a new standard for temporary walls using the Starc System for public-facing temporary walls to reduce noise while improving air quality to adjacent spaces. These temporary walls provide a clean, professional look and make space appear finished, despite construction activities occurring on the other side of the wall. In addition to their professional appearance, the walls can be erected and dismantled much faster than traditional temporary wall systems. In a hospital setting, we’ve installed more than 300 linear feet of Starc temporary walls in six hours, greatly reducing disruption to the fully occupied facility.
Our field management and staff are certified and trained in Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) and understand the delicate requirements of working in occupied facilities, so we’re always closely monitoring safety protocols. Additionally, we know how to implement effective noise mitigation and the installation of temporary walls and dust containment systems.

THE RJM DIFFERENCE
You can count on our healthcare construction team to be familiar with your campus, staff, quality standards, and expectations. In preparation for a project, we evaluate team member workloads to ensure they have the resources, capacity, and commitment needed to effectively complete the preconstruction and construction schedule without any conflicts. Then we provide an in-house preconstruction team to advance your project through efficient cost estimating, scheduling, and value management.
Our healthcare team is actively engaged in continued learning through the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) and our field staff is trained in ICRA awareness by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Also, several team members have earned the designation of Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) by the American Hospital Association. A national credential held by an elite group of healthcare construction professionals shows dedicated training on healthcare codes, standards, guidelines, and compliance initiatives.
The RJM team brings personal attention and hands-on experience to your construction journey. We know that success takes clear communication, planning, and flexibility, even as project conditions change. Count on us for creative ideas, game-changing insights, and the best construction experience possible.
